Spare Backup Software Now Available for Health Care Providers Seeking an Electronic Data Backup and Recovery System for their HIPAA Compliance

PALM DESERT, Calif., June 13 / -- Spare Backup, Inc (BULLETIN BOARD: SPBU) announced today that its software is now available for use for Healthcare providers needing to use a cost effective remote date backup and recovery system that meets the requirements set forth by HIPAA.

Spare Backup Data Protection can help health organizations meet HIPAA compliance requirements, specifically those of the Subpart C-Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information.

Spare Backup is a secure, online backup service that automates the process of backing up electronic data. Spare Backup was created to satisfy the broad need for an easy to use, automatic and secure method of backing up data offsite. All data selected for backup including, patient and billing records, are encrypted before leaving the user's computer(s) and are not accessible unless authenticated by the user's encryption key. This encryption key is stored on the user's system and is never transmitted over the Internet. Thus, only the user has access to his or her files, eliminating the threat of unauthorized access. Spare Backup does not have access to the unencrypted files.

Each file is individually encrypted using a unique 256 bit encryption key. Spare Backup uses 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption technology. AES encryption was developed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is now the state-of-the-art standard encryption technique for both commercial and government applications. For added security, and to meet Subpart C-Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information transmission requirements, each encrypted file is sent over the Internet via a secure channel using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This is the same Internet transmission technology used for online banking and credit card applications. As a result, all data is encrypted twice. It is encrypted at all times using the 256-bit AES encryption, and is further encrypted during transmission over the secure Internet connection, to and from the data centers. Further, all user data is sent to and stored within our secure Tier 3 data centers. Spare Backups Tier 3 data centers have 24/7 on-site monitoring, advanced security technology such as biometric access controls, backup generators and redundant connections to the Internet.

Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup stated, "Our solution provides Healthcare providers with a cost effective and easy way to comply with certain HIPAA requirements and we are excited to enter into this growing and important field of use."
